Day 9 | 13 January 2015




Today we gathered into groups of two and three and edited video footage we filmed during the week. The subject was “Communication”.

Everyone came up with their own unique ideas.


For some, it meant communication through technology and cartoons, and for some it meant communication with people, friends,or even communication through abstract ideas.

We learned that for each individual communication meant something different, but everyone was able to express their ideas well using their unique talents and perspectives.


While working on this subject, everyone gained new editing skills and also worked on communicating their thoughts during the creative process of working together in teams.

We learned how to layer music on the timeline of the videos adding a whole new element to the process – communicating through sounds as well as imagery!

After editing we watched all our movies as a group.

We were all excited to view each others movies and see what everyone had to say about it all.

We didn’t have time to discuss in depth all of the themes that came up, but we will continue next week before moving on to the next project.
